Grumpy Quotes:

  • Grumpy: That's a lot of money. If this Joker guy was so smart, he'd have had us bring a bigger car.

    [promptly draws his gun and points it a Bozo]

    Grumpy: I'm bettin' the Joker told you to kill me as soon as we loaded the cash.

    Bozo: [looks at his watch, checking it. He sighs] No, no no no. I kill the bus driver.

    Grumpy: [as Bozo moves a few paces to one side] Bus driver? What bus driver?

    [a yellow school bus reverses through the bank's doors and knocks Grumpy down. The driver jumps out]

    Bus Driver: School's out! Time to go!


    Bus Driver: Cat's not gettin' up, is he?

    [loading duffels]

    Bus Driver: That's a lot of money. What happened to the rest of the guys?

    [Bozo casually shoots the bus driver dead, then picks up the last duffel and throws it into the bus. Bozo prepares to climb in]

    Gotham National Bank Manager: Think you're smart, huh? The guy that hired youze, he'll just do the same to you. Oh, criminals in this town used to believe in things. Honor. Respect. Look at you! What do you believe in, huh? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?

    Bozo: [putting a gas grenade in the banker's mouth] I believe, whatever doesn't kill you, simply makes you...

    [takes off his mask revealing the face of the Joker]

    The Joker: ...stranger.

  • [During the bank heist, the bank manager produces a shotgun and starts blasting away. Bozo and Grumpy dive for cover]

    Gotham National Bank Manager: Do you have any idea who you're stealing from? You and your friends are dead!

    Grumpy: [with Chuckles, picks up Bozo on the street] Three of a kind, let's do this!

    Chuckles: Huh, that's it? Three guys?

    Grumpy: Plus two guys on the roof. Every guy gets a share. Five shares is plenty.

    Chuckles: *Six* shares. Don't forget the guy who planned the job.

    Grumpy: He thinks he can sit it out and still take a slice? I know why they call him "The Joker".

    Happy: [up on the roof, breaking open the alarm box with Dopey] So why do they call him "the Joker"?

    Dopey: I hear he wears makeup.

    Happy: Makeup?

    Happy: Yeah, to scare people. You know, war paint.

    Grumpy: I said hands up!

    Dopey: [waiting eagerly with Happy on the roof] Here comes the silent alarm...

    [presses a button to disable it]

    Dopey: ... and there it goes!

    [Downstairs, Grumpy has managed to pull the female teller over the counter]

    Dopey: That's funny. It didn't dial out to 911 - it was trying to reach a private number.

    Happy: Is there a problem?

    Dopey: Nah, nah. I'm done here.

    [Happy shoots him, steals his bag, and rushes downstairs into the vault. In the lobby, Bozo is sticking gas grenades in the hostages' hands and pulling the pins]

  • [During a bank heist, the Joker has tricked all his men into killing each other, one after the other. One of the last ones, getting wise, points his gun at another thug, who still has his mask on]

    Bozo: No. No, no, no. I kill the bus driver.

    Grumpy: [confused] Bus driver? What bus dri-?

    [a school bus drives through the wall and kills Grumpy]

  • Happy: [after cracking open the bank's safe] They wired this thing up with, like, 5,000 volts. What kind of bank does that?

    Grumpy: A mob bank. I guess the Joker is as crazy as they say. Where's the alarm guy?

    Happy: Boss told me, when the guy was done, I should take him out. One less share, right?

    Grumpy: Funny, he told me something similar.

    Happy: What...?


    Happy: No, no, no-!

    [Grumpy shoots him]
